It's easy to hear why 4/26 made the cut as the first released E72 show - even Phil said he was surprised at the playing.

But Rockin the Rhein (4/24) isn't too shabby either, and it is the complete show (in far superior quality to what circulated) - and it includes Pigpen's last Lovelight as a bonus, too. An A+ release.

Steppin' Out is fairly comprehensive, since it includes lots of the songs they did on the tour; and I can't argue with a release that has the 4/8 medley - for me, it was mainly valuable for the awesome 4/7 Other One, and some of the 5/7 selections, which were not elsewhere available as SBDs.

Yeah the 4/7 jam was the primary reason I bought Steppin out. An uncirculated multitrack source Truckin>Other One jam from Europe 72? Where do I sign? And yeah, ya can't complain about any release that has the 4/8 jam included. I could go on and on about those shows, and could write for days just breaking down the Truckin>Other One and Lovelight from 4/26. But I will spare the choir.

What made the 'Rheine release so great for me, aside from being a MAJOR upgrade, was the bonus disc. Getting the big Caution jam from 3/22 in great sbd quality was a complete surprise. I bought the official release but unfortunately missed out on the bonus disc. I later "obtained" it though...
